Happy NHL Draft night! The most exciting night of a young hockey players career, the night where the opportunity to play in the big show is one stride closer. The 2012 NHL Draft class is as always, a group of talented young men looking to make their mark on the hockey world. Who will be picked first overall?
If your favorite team doesn’t hold the #1 pick, don’t fret. The first pick doesn’t always turn out to be the best and some diamond in the rough players haven’t come from the top.
The first round of selection kicks off tonight at 7pm on NBC Sports. Coverage continues on NHL Network tomorrow at 10 am for the 2nd round.
